    Hi guys,

    I am using the following code the change the spellchecker language :

    dictionary = new RadDictionary();
                       ((DocumentSpellChecker)this.richTextArea.SpellChecker).AddDictionary(dictionary, new CultureInfo("it-IT"));

    resource variable is a Stream object streamed from the server.

    But all the suggestions are english words not italians.

    Am I missing something here ?

    Hi Joseph,

    Currently the SpellChecker gets the suggestions from the dictionary, associated with the current culture of the UI thread (which in your case is English). What you can do now is to set the current culture of the UI thread like this:

    Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture = new CultureInfo("it-IT");

    We will be introducing a mechanism that will enable spell checking in languages other than English without having to change the current culture. It will be included into the official Q1 2011 release.

    All the best,
    the Telerik team
